Due to medical issues, we are trying to sell our house

Due to medical issues, we are trying to sell our house quickly. We contacted “We Buy Ugly Houses” and were contacted by a local person saying they were with “D&D Realty.”They came out, made an offer and we signed the contract. We were told that we would be given a copy. We did not receiveone. When I asked for a copy, we were sent an incomplete contract, missing the info that had been talked about (see attached photos) (although I fully remember them writing down at LEAST the term of a 21 day contract period and later via text, the “rep” agreed that we had established this).We know now that the person who signed the contract misrepresented his plan for selling our home. He is not a realtor. He put our house on Craigslist with the address & photo attached. We are still living in the house and the whole reason for selling quickly was to avoid multiple showings and inspections. Instead, in addition to the hastily arranged showings, we had people, not realtors or contractors, parking in our drive, walking around our yard, all without any notice or the presence of the rep while we were here. Yesterday, we returned from church to find a truck in our driveway and 3 people, two on the back porch and one on the front. Our dog was inside barking excessively and when we went in, it looked like he had been clawing at both doors, something he has never done in the 3 years we had him. My husband grabbed the dog and I asked the people if I could help them. Two were back in the truck already. The person from the front porch was walking past me on the way to the truck and said that they had seen the ad on Craigslist and was told they could come by. I asked who he spoke to and he said the “rep's” name. I was still upset but was offering to show them the house when the guy jumped in the truck and sped off. We alerted the local police who said it sounded like a Craigslist scam and just last night, they pulled over a suspicious car in front of our house.We looked and found the Craigslist ad and immediately contacted the Rep and informed him that we would be looking at the validity of the contract and if he was remiss in posting the ad with our identifying material. He just took the ad down today. The police are keeping an eye on things in the meantime.What we want to know is:Is this a valid contract, and why?If so, do we have reasonable grounds to break the contract because of the behavior of the “rep” and why?If not, what are our legal options?

My landlord sent me an email that he has a new leasing

My landlord sent me an email that he has a new leasing agent. All I know about her is her email address. She ignores all my requests for her address, phone number and real estate license, but sends people to my home without any notice and if I don't let them in "documents" that I refused to let them in. Is she required to give me this information?

I am buying a real estate property (residential house). I do

I am buying a real estate property (residential house). I do not have a sellng agent and found the property myself. I know if I would have had the selling agent then this selling agent would have been entitled to 3.5% fee from the seller. Since I do not have the selling agent -- can I negotiated with the listing agent for this 3.5% (because if I do noting the listing agent would get full 7%). For example, can I specify in the contract to purchase (or some other agreement) that if there is a gap between my offer and the seller counteroffer -- the listing agent would be obligated to come up with up to 3.5% of the selling price to bridge the gap? Or are there any other legal ways for me to get some benefit in getting the % from the listing agent because I am doing the purchase without the selling agent?
